Most of the Aurelian Walls, begun by the Emperor Aurelian (AD 270-75) and completed by his successor Probus (AD 276-82), has survived. Some 18 km (11 miles) round, with 18 gates and 381 towers, the walls took in all the seven hills of Rome. It was raised to twice its original height by Maxentius (AD 306-312)
